About this book

This fundamental guide to understanding plant structure offers plant scientists, plant biologists and horticulturalists in practice and in academia, a combination of concise scientific text and superb color photographs and drawings.

The book deals with the development and mature form of plants, focusing on structure at anatomical, histological and fine structure levels. Appropriate emphasis is given to plants of economic importance.

The new and totally revised edition has been expanded by 30% with 194 new photos and diagrams. The original author has been joined by Dr James Mauseth to create a formidable partnership of teaching and research experience from Europe and North America.

Key elements of the revised book include: recent findings (supplemented by DNA analysis) on the classification of flowering plants; current concepts of plant wall structure; detailed description of eg. leaves as insectivorous traps; spines in cacti, desert plants adapted for water storage, saltmarsh and aquatic plants; a new section on asexual plant multiplication; additional bibliography and website resources.
